Janácek The Cunning Little Vixen – Suite (UK premiere)
Rolf Hind The Tiniest House of Time, for accordion and orchestra (BBC commission: World premiere)
Rimsky-Korsakov Sheherazade

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Jakub Hrusa
conductor
James Crabb accordion

Tales from the stage underpin this imaginative programme, featuring a newly-arranged suite from Janáček’s zestful drama of woodland life The Cunning Little Vixen and Rimsky-Korsakov’s glittering orchestral evocation of scenes from the Arabian Nights, in which the lead violinist plays the seductive Princess Sheherezade herself. Composer Rolf Hind has a reputation for throwing fresh light on all he touches, and this is his first major work for accordion, inspired by the irrepressible virtuoso James Crabb.
